DJ Khaled attends the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards at Prudential Center on Aug. 26, 2019 in Newark, N.J. 

Ever the social networking pro, DJ Khaled didn’t waste time at the 2019 MTV VMAs.

Billboard, who was on site at the Prudential Center Monday night (Aug. 26), spotted the Midas touch producer hitting up Billy Ray Cyrus, hot off his streak alongside Lil Nas X, for a quick preshow chat and hearty hug.

Shortly after, Queen Latifah -- in a killer orange jumpsuit - showed up, flashing peace signs for cheering fans. Khaled was quick to swoop in, chatting with the iconic talent and, naturally, ending in a big ol' hug. 

Is that Latifah-Cyrus collab on the way? If anyone could make it happen, it’s Father of Asahd.

Keep checking back at throughout the evening for full VMAs coverage.
